Laura saw Gabrielle’s motivation when they met online and could see that she was willing to make changes and try new ways to improve her situation.
“I already had a great dietician, and my friends and family were so supportive, but nobody in my sphere knew enough about autoimmune disorders to effect change.”
Not having enough of the correct information about alopecia and other autoimmune disorders is a genuine problem. Even doctors and dieticians can only help to a point when it comes to the immune system.
“My biggest breakthrough was finding a diet that worked and was easy to stick to. Working with Laura gave me a better understanding of what my body needed in terms of nutrition and what I should avoid eating –in my case, nightshades turned out to be a no-go. I also added more protein to my diet.”
Gabrielle now consumes more protein, fatty and fermented foods and uses supplements to cover nutrient gaps.
“Eliminating certain ingredients from my diet had an almost immediate positive effect on my energy levels. A week in, I felt incredible! I never experienced anything like it before. I still have a way to go, but after six months of working with Laura, I feel better, look healthier, have more energy, and my hair has become fuller.”
Using a functional medicine approach to autoimmune disorders is about identifying the exact cause. Habit formation and behaviour change can be subtle and take time. Put yourself first and clear your head for change to happen.
“With Laura’s help, I finally quit my day job. I’m still a workaholic, but I make much more money with far less stress being self-employed full-time.”
For anyone suffering from an autoimmune disorder such as alopecia, Hashimoto’s disease, perimenopause or midlife metamorphosis, expert guidance is always best.
